Starting in Rome, the capital city of Italy, with its mighty and famous coliseum, it's on toPalermo on the island of Sicily. One of Palermo's highlights is the city's oldest fortification, the Palazzo die Normanni. Another very popular destination for western Mediterranean cruises is the city of Palma de Mallorca on the island of the same name. With its 120 m long and 40 m wide cathedral, La Seu, the city presents an imposing face. Get to know Cagliari, at one and the same time the capital of Sardinia and its largest and oldest city.
